Gwyneth Paltrow usually keeps her private life out of the spotlight. But earlier this week she shared photographs from her recent family holiday on her lifestyle website goop.
She writes: "We are just back from an amazing (and sadly short) holiday at Sugar Beach - a Viceroy Resort in St Lucia. It was heaven."
She includes a snap of herself in an exclusive Melissa Odabash bikini - created especially for goop, and available to buy for £114 - alongside her two children. Moses, six, - who she calls 'Mosey' - is pictured drinking from a coconut shell. Gwyneth explains, "No, that's not a piña colada." Gwyneth's daughter Apple, eight, also smiles for the camera.
Gwyneth also shares snaps of her children playing in the sea and on the beach, along with pictures of the resort - although there were no pictures of her camera-shy husband, Coldplay's Chris Martin.

In March, Paris Hilton travelled to Sydney, Australia, where she was pictured on Bondi Beach in a black swimsuit and shorts. The socialite went Down Under for the launch of a club (lucky her!) and when she wasn't enjoying the city's nightlife, she was posing on the beach in her glamorous outfits.
In March, Tulisa headed to Miami to lap up the sun, sea and sand on a sexy photo shoot. It wasn't all work though as the singer had time to party too and even admitted on Twitter that she was a little hungover when she wrote: 'I feel like death warmed up, but its all good #Videoshoot.'

Instead of hitting the South of France on a yacht or enjoying the beaches of Miami, Desperate Housewives star Terri Hatcher took her daughter on an action-packed holiday in Croatia in July.

Of course safety came first and the duo was seen sporting helmets and life jackets as they stepped into the Cetina River near the town of Omis.
We've lost count of how many holidays Rihanna took this year but in July she travelled to the Mediterranean with a group of friends and spent a lot of time on a luxury yacht.

When Lady Gaga arrived in Brazil in November, we all heard about it! The singer took a trip to Rio de Janeiro where she displayed her voluptuous figure on her hotel balcony - with just a coconut covering the top half of her body at one point!
